Event details

The Myanmar military’s decision to seize power on 1 February 2021 triggered a wave of resistance across the country.

By the end of June, almost 5000 anti-coup demonstration events were reported in Myanmar. The military has responded with a campaign of violence and mass arrests and a total repression of many basic human rights.

Despite the crackdown, anti-coup activists have continued to demonstrate, and some have armed themselves in self-defence.
